Wonder if Jose might be on his way back to Madrid with Zidane gone. If so who would come in here and I guess it would really play havoc with our transfer plans.

Thr papers (who have absolutely no facts) are saying wenger as favourite for RM

Tgey have also linked every manager in the top 10 of football so.

Tge Wenger thing i don't understand at all tho.

3.) 01 Jun 2018 11:08:52
If . Big if. if jose was too leave . I'd go for Simone and let him bring greisman with him.

4.) 01 Jun 2018 11:51:33
No interest in Simeone from my side.
Would be even more “results over style” then Mourinho.
Would put us in a difficult spot with the season being over and transfer plans in full swing from all clubs.
Only positive would be it being a World Cup year, which is a big stumbling block in transfer dealings for the involved players anyway.

5.) 01 Jun 2018 23:31:04
Fat Sam is available 🤢 don’t think you would notice any difference if they swapped Jose for pulis.



03 Jul 2017 11:35:00
On talk sport, Jim White is saying Rooney is off to Everton. I think he would do well there especially as he will be really motivated for his boyhood club. I can see Everton being a real force this season. Would you guys be happy if we got Ross Barclay as part of the deal.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 11:54:46
Everton a real force hahaha.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 11:57:10
Not in anyway. Ross Barkley is bang average, always has been. Why would we want him? Where would he play?

3.) 03 Jul 2017 12:07:36
I don't want anything coming back the other way in this one. Barkley is only rated as he is English - his talent will be wasted. He should be up there with Alli in performance levels.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 12:20:51
Don't know how true but I was told Rooney was lined up for a coaching role at Everton next summer.

5.) 03 Jul 2017 12:32:07
I'd let rooney leave for free, we had the best Rooney years a while back so let him go and end his PL career with Everton. Oh and no I wouldn't want Barkley either.

6.) 03 Jul 2017 12:48:44
I thought Everton were making decent steps last season. Signings so far been ok. I wouldn't write them off.

7.) 03 Jul 2017 12:52:56
If Lukaku was part of the deal then how would you feel?

8.) 03 Jul 2017 13:37:10
Probably the new driver Jred.

9.) 03 Jul 2017 13:47:30
Everton have a good manager and made some astute signings. They will push for a top 4 spot this season i suspect but i'd imagine they will come up short.
As for rooney going back there. It would be nice for him to play out his career for the team and club he loves. He has had a great career at united ultimately 3 years too long probably but he will leave with the thanks of all supporters ringing in his ears i'd say. i'm sure when he conned back to OT he will get a great reception from the fans who will look back and ignore the last few years and remember the good times.

10.) 03 Jul 2017 13:50:39
conned? Who has he conned ken? ;)

11.) 03 Jul 2017 14:46:23
Would thank Rooney for his service and let him go for free to everton. Big wages off the books, but wouldn't want Barkley everton fans don't want him .

12.) 03 Jul 2017 14:58:15
I'd definitely let him go for free, it's the sensible business decision. Nobody is going to pay for him and I don't even know what value he has as a footballer, it's commercially where a buying lcub would see the benefits. Big wage bill off the books too.

He should and will go down as a legend.

The only reason I can't see him going to Everton (other than wages) is because I really don't see how he will get in their team.

13.) 03 Jul 2017 15:27:52
I would straight swap rooney and or fellaini for barkley. Putting aside how good you think barkley is it would make finacial sense. In this market you could sell barkley on for at least 30m next year.

I agree with most that barkley has been overrated in the past but he isn't average. He contributed to 13 league goals last season that's more than most of our squad members managed.

14.) 03 Jul 2017 17:06:08
Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Got a good old fashioned friend of a friend rumour for you.
My brother in law, his girlfriend's dad is an Everton fan and he has said today the Lu Lu Lukaku is heading to United. Can't say I believe it but as I've said before I'd be happy if that came off.

15.) 03 Jul 2017 19:07:56
I can see lukaku coming tbh. I personally think he would be a brilliant signing for us. Good old fashioned striker who has consistently scored goals in teams that aren't challenging for the league. i'm not saying everton are bad side but if he can get the goals there surely with a bit of a step up he's going to score more.

16.) 04 Jul 2017 11:39:22
I like Barkley, not sure he is good enough for CL level. Had the potential, but not kicked on, so I'd give him a swerve.

In terms of Rooney - my prediction is he will start off well for 3-4 games, then by Xmas he will phased out of the team when they realise he is not mobile/ capable enough for the way they play. If we can get away with not paying any of his wages then it's a phenomenal way to get out of jail. I'd let him go for free of course, in fact I'd let him go if they offered to send us Gibson, Phil Neville and Tim Howard as part of the deal, lol.

Now we will see how good Ole is. Wolves are a good team but we just did not perform to our potential. Teams who press us hard are going to take points of us. We lack midfield guile and defensively are still weak. I really don't think we will get top four and that will make it very hard to get the best players to strengthen us next season.




12 Mar 2019 22:38:21
Anybody spot the resemblance between youth player Ercolani and a young Gary Neville?




05 Mar 2019 01:04:05
I fear that Wednesday will be another reality check for us. Our first pick. Midfield three were not up to the challenge in the home leg so to expect their replacements to do any better is not sensible. I also got the feeling that PSG really eased off the throttle once they got a good lead so if they decide to have a real go at us it coukd be a real beating. Whatever the result this tie should give the manager and board a truer understand of how badly we need to improve to compete.


1.) 05 Mar 2019 07:19:57
I actually think its the opposite.
We are about to play one if the best teams in the world, away with a massively depleted squad .
I don't think there is any reality check, its a massive ask .

2.) 05 Mar 2019 09:11:23
The game was even until martial and lingard were forced off.

Yes they are a quality side with some quality players but that counts for nothing if the other team has more desire and heart.

As long as we give 100 percent and leave the pitch with no regrets I'll be happy. What will be will be

We need a good performance to take into Sunday's massive game.

3.) 05 Mar 2019 10:40:21
Seems like every match now is a reality check for us according to some. Just like the Soton match with sanchez's injury, maybe throwing a spanner in the works will lead to a positive result. Fingers crossed.

4.) 05 Mar 2019 11:19:36
I agree i don't see it as a reality Che n at all.
We jnow the squad is weak in certain areas that's not in question.
Sometimes adversity means that the remaining fit players pull together and can achieve results in one off games or over short periods that they would not necessarily achieve over a longer sustained period.
It really is a no lose situation for ole and the players.

5.) 05 Mar 2019 18:59:22
Agreed. I think for the first time in years we are being realistic. We know the squad cannot challenge for a title or Champions League right now.



26 Feb 2019 22:10:40
I am concerned more about our midfield than our attack. Palace with Townsend and Zaha need to be shackled properly and the midfield has to help out and shield the defence whilst still providing ammunition for out attack. Not sure if Greenwood has an injury. Chong might be bullied out of things as he is not physically strong. I would love Gomes to do well as he has huge talent. It's one thing to blood a youngster or even two when the rest of the team is strong enough but if they come in and the team is beaten and they can't get into the game I hope the fans still support them.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 23:07:23
Tomorrow night is a weird one selection wise i think only ddg shaw pogba and Lindelof can be the only players sure of selection. I would say smalling but bailly is there to cover if he doesn't want to risk him as he is only back from injury himself.
Mctom is probably a safe bet along with sanchez and lukaku so that leaves 3 spots between young dalot periera and fred from our usual squad. Rojo probably bailly one of the 4 above along with gomes garner and chong on the bench with romero.
Personally i would play a front 3 of lukaku right sanchez centre and young on the left. Dalot at rb and mctom pogba and periera in midfield.
I don't expect that to be oles choice.
I think he will play the same midfield with fred as 10 behind lukaku and sanchez.

2.) 27 Feb 2019 12:43:55
Ken any more injuries and Ole and Carrick will be playing. Apparently Sir Bobby's been spotted at Carrington smashing a few shots at Romero.



20 Feb 2019 23:10:36
Ed 02. You have told us Pogba wants to leave. Do you have any information about Fred. Is he one of the players the club would like to move. If so that would leave us pretty short of midfield options.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 21 Feb 2019 08:27:30
Pogba is going nowhere. He hated Mourinho and now has his mojo back. I am good friends with John Cofie who is one of Pogba’s best mates and this has come from him.

2.) 23 Feb 2019 19:34:53
Sorry for my late reply to say thanks Ed 02.

{Ed002's Note - No problem at all.}

Dodgy Banter glad to see you are on the same page. Seems like that message has been learnt by 7 other reds or should I say ex reds. Well done those 7 Labour MPs today.

It really is awful that people are just willing effectively to say that because this is an ever increasingly connected world, that we don't always have the ability to affect things directly and that other people have in the past and continue to not have moral scruples that therefore it's ok get into bed with evil people. I am as passionate a fan as most but no way do I want out club anywhere near the Saudis. Can we affect their chances of taking control? I believe we can if there is a concerted effort made especially through the media. One thing about Arab mentality is that they do not like to lose face and do not like negative publicity. If we all tien up to Old Trafford with banners saying " Utd not for sale for blood money" then I think they would soon look elsewhere. I can imagine they might look at Spurs and let them. I would rather not have the greatest team of it was funded by anyone who has no compunction on murdering dissenters. Whatever wrongs we British have done or Trump is a red herring. No country is innocent but here in this country we have the rule of law and people don't just disappear because they disagree with the government. What is the world coming to when people cannot see beyond the tribal rivalries involved in winning titles and cannot see the bigger picture. Greed is not good (sorry Michael Douglas) and money often is the root of many evils. Is money all that matters nowadays!

Sorry guys but to me it is important who owns our club. I may not like how the Glazers leveraged the club but to the best of my knowledge they do not have blood on their hands. Do we really want to be owned by any regime which murders its opponents, stifles criticism of it, denies women many basic rights and funds terrorists? Our soldiers and citizens right here in this country have been bombed and killed because of funding by such regimes. It sickens me that so many supporters will sell their soul for the sake of a trophy. Since when did a piece of metal or silver matter more than a person's life. The fact that Fifa sold out to the Qataris and gave them the world cup and that people have died building the stadia in Qatar is desperately sad. The world cup there will be the biggest ego trip ever seen. When do we take a stand against blood money. Please do not argue that as City and Barcelona have owners from that region that it is OK. It is not.

Red Man in principle I agree with you. Selling out to the less than liberal rulers of a kingdom which funds how shall I put this. that allegedly funds soldiers of dubious ethics and morality. as well being rulers of a ki gdom that treats women as second class citizens. This is not what Man Utd should ever be associated with. But as pointed out Big Bucks rules in football now. Seems to me nobody cares much about the owners of our noisy neighbours and Barca. The Qatari regime is not exactly a paragon of virtue. So being pragmatic if our club prostitutes itself by being sold to the highest bidder if us the fans do not protest en masse we have no right to complain. Imagine banners all round OT with Saudis Out. It won't happen.

Koulibaly is not good enough. Ditto Costa. Pay whatever it takes to keep De Gea as he saves us a lot of points each season and at his age his best is still to come. Keepers mature later. I like Romero but De Gea can make the difference at a crucial moment like very few keeps can. Schmeichel Van Der Saar and now De Gea are three of the best keepers ever. Build from a strong foundation is the way to win titles.

I remember watching him walk off at Wembley having lost against us and he was in tears. That day I saw his desire to win and that's what we need today. Top quality players with the burning desire to win.

Should be a good open game of football. I hope the players are up for it as Wolves have proved they can mix it with the best. Watching them as a neutral has been a pleasure this season when they click. First time passing and no little skill. That said this is exactly the sort of game which will show Ole's managerial skills and how far the team has improved both in the way it plays and mentality.

Totally agree Ports. It is far too easy to overlook the good he did. He was a manager at big clubs for a reason and he did win us a trophy.

If Allegri is available I would give it to him. Proven winner in a very hard league. Will make sure our defence is solid and his teams play attractive football. Am slightly concerned at how Poch has started to talk about his team negatively recently. I always prefer the "don't wash your dirty linen in public" attitude. Defend them to the outside world but give them hell if needs be when alone with them. The other thing that concerns me about him is that he cannot seem to instill a winning mentality into Spurs that enables them to keep on winning despite the increasing pressure at the end of a successful season.
